Eelpower has started a seven-year contract with Centrica Business Solutions (CBS) for the optimisation of its battery storage plant at Leverton, near Lincoln, UK.
The 10 MW Leverton storage project was commissioned in 2017 in order to provide balancing services to the National Grid to facilitate the increase of renewable energy, enable the pathway to net zero and reduce energy costs for consumers.
CBS will take a multi-market optimisation approach using its proprietary FlexPond™ platform, identifying opportunities to support the balancing of the grid network from months in advance right up to real time.
Eelpower is receiving a fixed guaranteed return for the seven-year term, with additional payments for every battery cycle from day one of the contract above and beyond the guarantee.
